One policeman hurt and four arrested in Pamplona protest
ThinkSpain , Tuesday, March 16, 2004

A national policeman was injured when a protestor smashed a bottle on his head last night in Pamplona, after the funeral of the 61 year old baker, Ángel Berrueta, who was shot by an off-duty policeman last Saturday, following an argument caused by the baker´s refusal to display a black bow of mourning for the victims of the terrorist bomb attacks on three local train stations in Madrid last Thursday, in his shop window. The officer´s injuries are not reported to be too serious, but he did need one or two stitches.

Four protestors were arrested in the La Asunción parish in the San Juan district of Pamplona, two of whom had travelled from Vizcaya to attend the funeral. It appears that a small group of troublemakers wearing ski masks were responsible for the violence, and for setting light to several rubbish bins. Around 1,200 mourners attended the funeral, although the family had wanted it to be a small, private occasion.
